Abstract: About 1000 years ago, England was ruled by a king named Canute. By legend, Canute was a wise man who knew his limitations. When his flattering courtiers claimed that his power was so great that even the ocean would obey his command, he ordered that his throne be carried down to the water’s edge. He sat there and ordered the tide not to come in, knowing full well that this particular command would go unheeded but wanting to shame his fawning courtiers.
